Soya and Green Peas Cutlet

“Delicious, yum, bring me another!” Those are exactly the words that will be on your lips after you taste a Soya and Green Peas Cutlet. And, well, you can indulge in one more without much guilt as these cutlets are tava-cooked and not deep-fried. A combination of protein-packed and fibre-rich soya granules and green peas along with other vegetables makes this a healthy snack. Unlike traditional tikkis that are completely potato based, this one uses a small quantity of potatoes combined with whole bread slices for binding. This innovative twist not only reduces the amount of starch, it also improves the texture and flavour of the tikkis, making them all the more irresistible.

   We have not tried it in an air fryer. But you can try it at 180 degree. It might take around 15 minutes, but keep checking at regular intervals.

I do not like soya, but to add soya in my son's diet I made Soya Cutlets and was surprised, the taste of soya with all the other veggies in the cutlet was quite good.Now I make burgers and wraps also with this cutlet.
